Once you have had enough suffering you dedicate your life to peace. “Enough suffering” varies in type and amount for each person – the only path is your path out of your individual suffering. The path out of suffering contains many similarities yet ultimately you journey your own journey.
A time is reached in life when you decide to make no more pain for yourself; you surrender resistance to reality. You live to give, to help and to offer your gifts to the world.
You have to make a conscious choice to end your suffering and in doing so the way opens up before you.
Whatever you choose is a step you must take, trusting your inner compass along the way; no wrong decisions, only steps.
You recognise that you have suffered enough when you can accept the fact of this statement:
“I am creating my suffering”
I am making choices and taking actions that are causing problems in my life and I can change.
When you choose not to accept any more suffering your life changes. You can begin to live to give instead of to get.
From recognition to intention – beginning with the statement:
“I will make no more suffering for myself or others”
The start of the end of suffering.
This applies equally well both individually and collectively.
